“Saye” (two syllables: sa-ye) in Saye Music Company means “three” in Taiwanese. The company is so named because it was founded by three musically talented brothers. The eldest brother, Tai-ju Chuang, is an active pianist and piano teacher; the middle brother, Chu-ti Chuang, plays and repairs harmonica; and the youngest brother, Ash Chuang, specializes in guitar repair and is responsible for running the business.
